Will steal a vernier and check before I get the post. Thanks for the offer of the clamp, but I will hold off for a silver/coloured one once I confirm sizes as I just need a bolt for the cheapy (I think it is cheapy!) that came with it. Cheers matey.

TP - thanks for putting the pic on!

Kit list updated - nearly ready to build, just need the wheels to arrive and a seatpost (but handy that my Tomac uses a 31.6 and I have a layback Thomson in it. It is black, but will do the trick and help me check geometry and riding position until a silver one turns up on the 'Bay).

Thoughts from the Retrobike crew though - I was going to use these lovely Manitou Comps on the abortive Funk build, but I am really thinking that it needs Pace on a British frame. Sounds silly, and the M Comps are sooo sweet, but I am not sure they are right.

Their shape and finish will suit more than Pace IMO.

USE? Nice and niche to go with the frame. I seem to have an aversion to mixing yank and brit parts :roll:
